A Textual Commentary On Mark 16:18

(a) It is only since the appearance of Griesbach’s second edition [1796–1806] that Critics of the New Testament have permitted themselves to handle the last twelve verses of S. Mark’s Gospel with disrespect. Previous critical editions of the New Testament are free from this reproach. “There is no reason for doubting the genuineness of this portion of Scripture,” wrote Mill in 1707, after a review of the evidence (as far as he was acquainted with it) for and against. Twenty-seven years later, appeared Bengel’s edition of the New Testament (1734) ; and Wetstein, at the end of another seventeen years (1751-2), followed in the same field. Both editors, after rehearsing the adverse testimony in extenso, left the passage in undisputed possession of its place. Alter in 1786-7, and Birch in 1788a, (suspicious as the latter evidently was of its genuineness,) followed their predecessors ‘ example. But Matthaei, (who also brought his labours to a close in the year 1788,) was not content to give a silent suffrage. He had been for upwards of fourteen years a laborious collator of Greek MSS. of the New Testament, and was so convinced of the insufficiency of the arguments which had been brought against these twelve verses of S. Mark that with no ordinary warmth, no common acuteness, he insisted on their genuineness. “With Griesbach,” (remarks Dr. Tregellesb,) “Texts which may be called really critical begin ;” and Griesbach is the first to insist that the concluding verses of S. Mark are spurious. That he did not suppose the second Gospel to have always ended at verse 8, we have seen already ‘. He was of opinion, however, that “at some very remote period, the original ending of the Gospel perished, —disappeared perhaps from the Evangelist’s own copy, —and that the present ending was by some one substituted in its place.” Griesbach further invented the following elaborate and extraordinary hypothesis to account for the existence of S. Mark xvi. 9–20.
